    Carol Kane

    Jew Score:



    June 18, 1952 —

    The purpose of this profile (profiles!) is to stop ourselves from confusing Carole King and Carol Kane.

    (We know this is not the first time we got confused with similarly-named celebrities. See the Helen Hunt (Holly Hunter) and Tony Roberts (Tony Robbins) profiles. Such is our lot...)

    Carole King: composer, singer, songwriter. Won a bunch of Grammys. Member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. "Her music would become the soundtrack to a generation. She wrote the songs that made other people famous." That's according to the ad for her Broadway musical. Yes, there is a Broadway musical, "Beautiful", based on her life. That's Carole King.

    Carol Kane: actress, comedienne. Won a bunch of Emmys. Oscar nominee. Played Woody's non-Annie Hall girlfriend in "Annie Hall". Was Andy Kaufman's girlfriend on "Taxi". "I'm not a witch, I'm your wife!" That's from "Princess Bride", where she steals a very memorable scene as Miracle Max's wife. Also acted on Broadway in "Wicked". That's Carol Kane.

    Jewish? Both are Jewish.

    One final thing: Carol Kane's real name is Carolyn. Carole King's is... Carol. Talk about confusing!

    Verdict: Jew.
